Microsoft is actually a great Android developer - 'To-Do' is another reason why!

It may seem suprising to some, but Microsoft is actually a fantastic Android developer. In fact, I'd go as far to saythat their app offerings for Android are far superior to than their offerings for the Windows App store. For starters the full suite of Microsoft Office apps are great, as is one drive and one note, and the Arrow App Launcher is actually one of the best custom android skins available (seriously - check it out!).

To round this out, over the last few days Microsoft has released 'To-Do' which as you've guessed it - is a to-do list. It really could not be simpler - the app allows the creation of lists and then as part of each list allows tasks and items to be added.

The design is simple and clean, and a nice move away from the boxy interface design that still dominates some of the earlier Windows apps for android. It's fast, lightweight, cloud based (of course) and has a widget - so there is not much more you could ask for!

Of course there is lots of co…

Super Moon Defender

Today's android app of the day is Super Moon Defender.



Super Moon Defender is a classic arcade action game for your Android mobile devices that will no doubt keep almost any gamer occupied for hours. The game-play takes the classic 1980's Atari Game, Missile Command, and gives it a modern twist, featuring fantastic new graphics, crisp sounds, online leader-boards and up-gradable weaponry.

The result is an addicting android game that you won't be able to put down. Game-play is simply. Players are presented with six moon bases / turrets to protect. In a series of waves. In a series of waves asteroids and aliens bombard the player's bases, which need to be defended by the player tapping the screen and destroying the incoming attacks.

The challenge is the ever-moving nature of the attacks, meaning that weapons always need to be launched slightly ahead of target. This makes a direct hit ever more satisfying, especially when combines with the excellent explosion and impact sounds the game utilizes. As the game progresses, points can be used to upgrade weapons, making defense against the increasingly difficult attacks slightly easier.

This is an 'endless' game though, so as the earlier levels may become more simplistic with practice, this game will present a challenge to even the best gamers out there, with the online leader-boards presenting a good opportunity for the community of fans to challenge each other for the #1 position.

All in all, I got hooked on Super Moon Defender during my short time playing the game, and I know for a fact I will be returning for more asteroid and alien blasting in the near future.

Wish - shopping made fun - and easy - and cheap!

These days sites like Amazon or eBay make buying and selling online quick and easy. Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows. Luckily, apps now exist to replicate that experience.

The best of the lot is Wish - which has the tagline 'shopping made fun' which could not be more true! When opening the app there are lots of categories to choose from, allowing you to pick the type of products you want to browse and going from there. Buying and checking out is only ever a few clicks away and if you are not careful you will very quickly load up on more products than you need!

I've launched sites that help out with buying cheap gadgets in the past, and it was heavily inspired by apps such as Wish which really allow someone to sit back and take pleasure in the shopping experience again! Download Wish now!

Hearthstone - better late than never - the best android card game!

I'll cut to it - Hearthstone is one of the best games you can get for your Android device - in fact, I am sure that plenty of people would argue it is one of the best games you can get at all - even on a PC! With that in mind, there's no reason not to jump in now and start experiencing this great offering from Blizzard. 
The gameplay is turn based card strategy, think Magic the Gathering, but fare more simple. Every turn the number of points you have to spend on cards increases, so it means that games start quite evenly handed but can escalate quickly, especially when more experienced players know how to string together the abilities of their cards.
The objective is to eliminate the health of your opponent - and once you succeed the victory is entirely satisfying, with some truly fantastic sounds and effects that drive home the sense of achievement. This is of course a free to play game, and it is possible to spend real world money in the store but it is not required to have …
